Korea Has (Taekwondo) Talent

Everyone is good at something. This martial artist, dubbed "Taekwondo Girl", is very good at, well, taekwondo.

The Taekwondo Girl goes by the name "Taemi" or "K Kim". The 24-year-old has appeared in a couple of martial arts movies. You might remember her from this amazing pitch she threw.

Recently, she appeared on South Korean variety show Star King in a showdown of sorts with Japanese martial artist Rina Takeda, who once again smashed tiles. With her head.

Here is Takeda before a studio audience:

These GIFs have been widely circulating online in South Korea. I'm not sure which stunt is more impressive. They're both incredibly cool!

놀라운 대회 스타킹 [Star King — Thanks Sang!]


    The baseball pitch is cool. The tile headbutting is a stupid parlour trick. Anyone can do it. You just need the right kind of tiles and to set the tiles up in the right way. (Notice how there is space between the tiles and the tiles and the ground for example)

      Anyone can do it*!

      *With the right training and equipment and setup and a bunch of practice...

        No you don't need any training which was my point.
